“Another great ride!!!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Jr and Danny, thanks again for the great Dolphin tour. This is our second time using Banana Bay Tour company. Anyone who has not done this tour needs to check it out. JR is a fantastic Captain. We were going to do the home tour but the weather was not cooperating. JR always keeps his passenger safety at the top of his list. He monitors the current weather to make sure everyone enjoys a safe ride. My husband and I will be back again next year. We also have done the Sunset Tour which is awesome as well. Once again JR and Danny hats off to both of you for making our 2 hours not only enjoyable but informative as well. See you in May of 2014.

“Fun for All Ages!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We took the Dolphin Nature Search cruise. It was very enjoyable for our party who ranged in age from 10 to 75. The crew was very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about Florida wildlife. The crew went out of their way to make the tour fun for kids. Our 10 year old got to drive the boat!
Thanks to Captain JR, Anya, and Danny for a fun afternoon!!

Traveling Trio19,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind review. I am so glad you were able to join us and enjoyed yourselves so much. Your Captain has studied to become a Florida Master Naturalist in Coastal Systems and loves to share information about the wildlife you see while on our cruises.

The crew have so much fun with the children as their special helpers on the boat. It's great to know that they enjoy their special task of locating the dolphins for us.

Thank you again for writing such a great review,

MrsG69 thank you for your great review. The dolphins are so much fun to watch no matter how many times we go out on the water. We just never know what to expect from those beautiful marine mammals! Watching them frolicking in the water jumping and gracefully moving about is just so much fun and I'm glad you enjoyed yourself.

Thank you again for the review,

“Great 4 Hours”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

JR , Anya and Dimitri run a tip top cruise of the Calousahatchie. We saw dolphins, osprey, and eagles as well as other birds and wildlife. JR was a very informative captain, explaining mangroves, conservation and water creatures. Lunch from Pignoli's was good and a stop on Picnic Island was a chance to explore. Highly recommend this cruise.

Annsh, thank you for the great review. The Eco cruise is our favorite cruise and we are all so glad you enjoyed yourself. The mangroves do amazing things for Southwest Florida's Eco System. They are a nesting area for birds, they serve as a storm buffer to reduce wind and wave action and they protect water quality by filtering it and trapping sediments.

Thank you again for the great review,

We are looking forward to seeing you again in the future,

“Fantastic boat trip”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We took the Half Day Ecological Dolphin Tour with Captain JR, Danny & Anja out of Cape Coral which includes lunch on a small island. It was a fantastic trip, saw loads of wildlife including lots of dolphins and JR is very informative about everything. Danny and Anja also did a brilliant job of making the tour feel very friendly and welcoming. We booked online through Zerve which was really easy and all the information needed was there, we even got to provide our lunch choices in advance without any problems. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
